‘Jebel Khalid … has not slotted easily into existing historical narratives – but, following two decades of excavation by an Australian team, a variety of evidence has been unearthed. The site is an important one, particularly as it is usually presumed to represent a Hellenistic settlement unmarred by later occupation. We must be grateful for this publication: not only does it publish part of an important corpus of data, making accessible the work from 1986 to 2006, but it also makes available a part of the ancient world which is unlikely to be accessible to foreign archaeologists for some time.’
J. A. Baird   Journal of Roman Archaeology

'Jackson and Tidmarsh provide a clear and full picture of the material correlates of life in a provincial city of the Seleucid empire. It is not a volume of answers but something much better: a volume of testimony, painstakingly gathered, studied, defined and described, filled with information and ideas that can inspire and help address a host of questions. Historians of the Hellenistic world, take note.'
